ACC-Big 10 Challenge - Its Virginia, Again

Just when Northwestern Coach Bill Carmody thought he was finished with former DePaul, now Virginia Coach Dave Leitao, we get to play Virginia and another Leitao team again in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge...

Its Dejavu all over again...
As the Northwestern Wildcats again get to play Virginia, only this time its in Charlottesville. Last year, the Cavaliers escaped Evanston with a 48-44 win.

Adding to the Chicago interest, is the presence of former DePaul coach Dave Leitao, who's teams have given the Cats fits in the past, and you get some added incentive for NU to win this one on the road.

The game is scheduled for November 30th at 7 PM, Wildcat Time on the "Hoos" Home court in Charlottesville, Virginia.

NU also has to watch out for a possible revenge factor in this game too. Its the first time any NU team will face the Cavaliers since the Lacrosse team humbled them in the NCAA finals. Look for a good cheering contingent from the Virginia Lacrosse team at the game.
